More allegations about Shell Corrib Gas Project


“On the Corrib gas terminal Shell are employing people to do the work of industrial fitters who are not qualified… so are putting the safety of the terminal at risk. The latest breach in health and safety was on Monday the 8th of April, a worker employed as a fitter without the necessary papers worked on cutting pipes… he cut through a live nitrogen pipe and put many lives at risk. Shell has set up an incident room but it is a smokescreen..:” “The drinking culture on the site has also become a big problem…” (*ANOTHER BOOZE ALLEGATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONTROVERSIAL PROJECT?)

From Mid West Radio Ireland – Evening edition – Official account provided by Shell PR

Shell Ireland says incident at Bellanaboy gas terminal last week did not pose any danger to the site

An incident that occurred at the Corrib gas terminal at Bellanaboy in North Mayo last Monday has been described by Shell as posing no danger to the environment

A pipe containing nitrogen was cut by mistake but the company says all nitrogen on the site was vented off as a precaution

Teresa O’Malley has more details…

As Shell’s Corrib Gas terminal at Bellanaboy is almost completed, the site is said to be in a state of preservation and during this phase of development low pressure nitrogen is pushed through the gas pipes to prevent any corrosion

Since January last, work has been ongoing on replacing the water surface pipes at the terminal

This procedure is completed by cutting off short sections of pipes, removing them and then replacing them

On Monday last the permitted workman carrying out the work on the surface pipes, accidentally cut a gas pipe. He immediately recognised the problem and alerted his supervisor

In response all nitrogen in the gas pipes was vented off as a precaution

In a statement from Shell the company said there was no danger to the site at any stage

An internal investigation is underway into the incident

ACCOUNT SUPPLIED BY A SHELL CORRIB GAS PROJECT INSIDER

On the Corrib gas terminal Shell are employing people to do the work of industrial fitters who are not qualified to do the work and so are putting the safety of the terminal at risk.

The latest breach in health and safety was on Monday the 8th of April a worker employed as a fitter without the necessary papers worked on cutting pipes he cut through a live nitrogen pipe and put many lives at risk.

Shell has set up an incident room but it is a smokescreen the person in question is local and an avid anti protesters.

The drinking culture on the site has also become a big problem also the amount of accidents that have been covered up is a major issue to site safety  – all of this is a danger to the community.
